Slide 1

    Social Legal and Ethical
    A code of ethics, also commonly called a code of conduct, defines acceptable behavior within an organisation. Higher standards are generally promoted when a code of ethics is accepted and followed by members of an organisation. It is useful as individuals working for the organisation have a benchmark upon which they can judge their own behavior and that of others.
    Informal and formal codes Most small organisations do not have a formal written code of ethics and instead rely on senior members of staff to lead by example, showing what acceptable behaviour is. Members understand the informal code by observing how senior members conduct themselves, e.g. the type of language used in emails and behaviour towards clients. Formal codes are written documents that outline expected behaviours within an organisation. Formal codes of ethics are usually enforced by the threat of disciplinary action should the code not be adhered to.

Organisations must register information on the type of data they wish to store and why it is being collected.
